1987 BMW 325i Convertible

The E30 BMW 3 series needs no introduction here at GCFSB. The darling of the range is most certainly the M3. This model represents Genesis, which has garnered the attention of enthusiasts, driving prices into the $20,000 to $30,000 range for top notch examples. This has subsequently increased interest in other E30 models in the lineup. The convertible wouldn’t be my first choice if I was in the market for an E30, but this example for sale in The Hamptons is making the right noises.

1987 BMW 325i Convertible on eBay

This is a 1987 BMW 325i Convertible with 79642 original miles. This car is in very nice condition, interior was restored in 2010 and is beautiful. This car has been owned by a local owner of a high end car repair shop and has been properly serviced throughout. There is a factory hard top as well that can be purchased separately.

This black on red color combination looks like a million dollars. It’s a nice departure from the usual red and white 325i convertibles you come across. Hats off to the upholsterer who recovered the seats, because it looks exactly like it did in 1987. The asking price of $11,000 is a little higher than what I’ve seen lately, but 80,000 miles is not that much for a 24 year old car. All the rubber, brightwork and paint look in good order, except for a few blemishes on the leading edge of the hood. The only thing putting me off is the automatic transmission, however, for certain buyers, this would be a plus.

As the saying goes, buy the best you can afford. This particular 325i convertible is certainly up there with the best the market currently has on offer.

    You can keep the convertible and auto, but I’ll take the interior! Gorgeous.

    I agree with Nate 100%. The kind of person who is going to spend $11k on a 25 model year old non-M BMW is not going to entertain the idea of an automatic. A transmission swap is certainly a possibility but the price needs to reflect the cost of a swap.

    We’ve talked before about the image a car projects. E30 convertible with automatic says “I am a hairdresser.”

    A E30 convertible with an auto says, “I got this car for my 16th birthday b/c I am a spoiled child”.

    If this was 5 speed swap I would consider 10k. Not as auto though. Best interior I have seen…

    hey guys i want to know, i bought this car for the way it looks, i didnt care the condition sincei was thinking that i would add a new transmission an whatever else it needed in the future, turns out there was no major problem on the car haha which is awesome because i now have an awesome looking classic and i only payed 950 to the guy!!!!!! everything ran great from the start, but it needed a tune up badly, i didnt know, but since i am curious i just decided to take it to the mechanics, boy was i right, the spark plugs where so messed up, it was so bad i felt like the car was going to die on me any second after i left lol, but anyways i invested 500 into the car now it runs great saves me gas and i will paint it soon, the interior is impeccable i cant believe the deal i got, the convertible top is totally new, well anyways i am still stupified at the deal hah, and its 5 speed, well my main point is, why would it be bad that it is auto and not 5 speed, mine is 5 speed :D, thanks guys,

    my car color is Black exterior and grey interior, oh and it has a salvage title lol maybe that explains the price, but still doesnt explain the condition?!?!
